Status Quo

"Hi Mom, how was your day at work?"

"Pretty good."

"So did anyone come into your office with so much blood gushing from their nose it soaked their shirt today?"

"Nope. Not today."

"Well, did anyone come by who fell on his back on the playground and really got more scared than hurt and just needed you to say 'you're okay' before you sent him back out to play?"


"Hmmm... Did a little girl come in to tell you that she had stabbed her own knee with a pencil?"

"Again, no."

"But for sure someone came limping in for an ice pack because she twisted her ankle at P.E.?"

"As a matter of fact, nope."

"No one came to your office to say that they had thrown up in the toilets and might need to do it again RIGHT NOW?"

"Sadly, no, son."

"So, let me get this straight, none of these things happened today?"

"Nope, not a one."

"Wow, you had a really boring day today"

"Yep. You got it. Some days are like that I guess."


  1. Funny boy. :)

    I got my postcard! Thanks, sweetie!


  2. Oh, too funny. What a vivid imagination!

  3. Ah, my kingdom for a boring day like that! He's very funny.

  4. Very funny! My daughter thinks my life is boring, too.

  5. The truth is, all of these events HAVE taken place in a single day in my life at work. But alas, not EVERY DAY is so much fun with vomit and blood and swollen ankles... only some of them!

  6. Isn't boring great? You know the ancient Chinese curse, right? "May you live in interesting times."

  7. Oh my gosh... so Andrew isn't the only funny one! What wonderful kids you have.

  8. Oh what a boring job you have, net even a bleeding knee every ten minutes. You must be asleep half of the time... :D

  9. Ah the curse of the mundane...!

    Did I tell you how jealous I am that you even have a job? Did I?

    And 2 blogs? And funny kids? and a husband who reads your blog on occasion?

    I think you should at least value the fact that I am still speaking to you!!

    Wishing you a less boring day today (ha ha!) ;-)

  10. So, I'm assuming that each one of those things have happened. lol

  11. I was wondering if these were all things that had happened at some point, and then I saw your comment. I won't even mention how boring my day was!

  12. Hahahaha. That's awesome. Here's hoping for blood, vomit, and swollen ankles to keep you entertained tomorrow... I hate to think of you being bored like that.
